Full Andre Drummond highlights from Rising Stars Challenge MVP performance

New, comments

30 points, 25 rebounds and a broken MVP trophy -- Andre Drummond put up a monster display.

Highlights courtesy of GrantHill (not THE Grant Hill).

Drummond's performance was full of offensive rebounds (14) and put-back dunks, but there were several highlights I've ... highlighted below:

1) One of my favorite highlights was when he pulled a rebound away from his own teammate (not shown) and dribbled coast-to-coast for a finger-roll layup off the square.

2) After his 23rd rebound of the game, Drummond showed that he could handle the ball a little bit by crossing up a sideways Kelly Olynyk and finishing the play by assisting Bradley Beal on a three pointer that put Team Hill up five points with 1:36 left in the game.

3) On the ensuing possession, Drummond decided enough was enough with Tim Hardaway Jr. draining long threes, so he opted to stick with Hardaway Jr. after a pick, double teaming the guard out of Michigan and ultimately blocking his long shot attempt. Drummond gave him the Mutombo treatment afterward-- not in my house!

4) Drummond's impressive free-throw shooting was not in the video. He was 6-for-8, which is 75 percent. Drummond is a career 40 percent free throw shooter.

Overall, not bad.
